Environmental Supply Chain &
Procurement Consulting

We provide consulting for projects that require a higher degree of transparency with regard to the environmental impact of materials and products being used. There is often a gap between designers intent and the environmentally accredited materials that can be sourced to the required budget.

Initial issues pose the question of what is considered sustainable or recyclable: is the environmental cost of recycling or up-cycling higher than producing new finishes that have a guaranteed recyclable future?

There are so many certificates for numerous countries with varying standards that are not exactly comparable and can be very confusing. Heavily certified does not necessarily mean no impact on environment and/or human employment. Heavily mechanized and automated plants may be ecologically more effective, but much less positive for employment. Ultimately all companies rely on the circulation of wealth to drive product demand.

We consider the use of well sourced environmentally friendly materials and products from companies with high production standards, as a real assets to any building development.
